    Thank you for your kind words, guys! I joined the WCG/BOINC project a few hours ago and I like what they do my computers. Well done, TPU team, the greatest WCG Team!:toast:

    P.S. First wrote on the wrong thread, do not judge strictly newcomer...

    Welcome! It wasn't the wrong thread. You had questions; was the right place to ask them.

    Let us know if you need any help with setting up those computers you had.

    Anyway, glad you've joined us, hope your stay is enjoyable! :)

    I thought I'd knock the dust off this thread for you guys.

    I've been crunching for about 5 days now. I have three machines running and I'm working on the fourth. I have my eye on that 10th slice of pie. ;)

    I do have a question about the difference between the point generation displayed on our WCG profile vs the points reported through the various sites linked in the TPU WCG stats thread Fitseries3 authored. Is this just the difference between points claimed and points granted?

    Welcome aboard :toast: Great to have another cruncher on the team!

    To answer the question I believe you are asking:
    WCG points are 7x larger than the BOINC points reported from other sources (i.e. 7 WCG pts= 1 BOINC pts). I not really sure why they do it this way... maybe one of our other members can chime in on this.
    Other items:
    - Our Daily Numbers posts- WCG points
    - Milestones and Pie- BOINC points
    - Cruncher badge- 100,000 BOINC points

    I think this will help. If you have any other questions you can ask us here or in our team thread.

    Again..Welcome Aboard :toast:

    Yep, as said above, WCG points are seven times your BOINC points and vice versa. :toast: Welcome aboard.
